%, which would in and of itself cut tax revenue by $5 trillion to make up that revenue mr. romney has said he wants to clear out the underbrush of deductions and loopholes but has not specified how he would do it. >> governor romney has made it plain. first of all, he doesn't want tax cuts for the rich. he's proposing lowering the top marginal rate to 28% obama's own commission recommended cutting it to 24%. so mitt romney's saying, i'm coming in 4% higher than obama's own commission. and by the way, obama's commission by getting rid of loopholes raised a trillion dollars in revenue. it didn't cut revenue at all. it raised revenue while cutting the rates more than mitt romney wants to cut the rates. now how is that a $5 trillion hole? >> governor strickland? >> hey, chris, can i talk just for a moment. >> as long as it is just for a moment. >> he has a $5 trillion tax cut plan. he says it's going to be revenue neutral because he's going to offset it by getting rid of loopholes. the only loophole he had enough courage to mention last night was big bird and public broadcasting. you know, the

that would help mitt romney. >> you would think it is. it probably does to an extent. one of the problems mr. romney has is that voters just don't like him very much. we asked voters if they have a favorable, unfavorable of the president. they have a net unfavorable of the president and unfavorable for mitt romney. >> pollsters have been under fire from the right. >> you know it's a piece of garbage. i believe it's head to head in new hampshire. i've seen enough other polls to tell you that is a piece of garbage. >> calling it garbage. governor sununu wasn't talking about one of your polls, but one in new hampshire. how do you fight against kill the messenger? is this different than the past? >> it's not all that different. quinnipiac and most major polls do not weight their polls for party i.d. if someone passes our voter screen, they pass our likely voter. we ask if they are a democrat, republican or independent. voter identification and party identification is a changing characteristic. in 2010, democrats were complaining about the polls because party i.d. figures were republican. in ohio

. he wrote today in the "wall street journal," "mr. romney must call out the president and set the record straight in a presidential tone." sounds good. and romney's taken his advice to heart. in fact, he says there are three issues he needs to correct the president on. here's the first one -- >> when he says i was in favor of of liquidating the automobile industry, nothing could be further from the truth. my plan was to rebuild the auto industry and take it through bankruptcy so that could happen. >> oh, really? romney's starting with an easy one here. we know exactly what he thinks about the automobile loan. because he wrote about it in 2008. romney said, let detroit go bankrupt. he said, federal money could kill the automobile industry. but the cash injection did what? the absolute opposite. automakers got special financing from the taxpayers. and, of course, michigan's unemployment level hit its lowest point in three years. general motors is reporting profits again. now, mitt romney wants to set the record straight. he says he actually wanted to rebuild the automobile indus

in our poll of people who watched the debate. 67% to 25%, they thought mr. romney won the debate. when asked who was more likeable, debate watchers gave the two candidates essentially equal marks. that's one piece of spin that doesn't quite pass the sniff test. decide for yourself if this one does from the campaign's ben lebold who suggested mitt romney last night was acting. >> it was performance art. he locked himself into some bad positions that he took during the republican primary, tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas, refusing to ask the wealthiest for a dime to reduce the deficit and those give us big openings to talk about on the campaign trail in key states in the weeks ahead. >> vice president biden, meantime, said his boss did a good job during a bright line between his policies and mitt romney's. >> i think the psident did a wonderful job in making it clear just how stark that choice is. >> keeping them honest, that is precisely where the pundits, even those who support president obama, say he dropped the ball and when we asked our viewers whether mr. obama did

contrast, and i think mr. rency there was right. i mean, governor romney is talking about greater tax cuts and hoping that this time instead of growing deficits is grows jobs, and president obama's talking about a more balanced approach in line with the sort of policy choices and mix of investments and also balanced approaches that -- neil: but, governor, what did you make of the argument that governor romney used? mr. president, if you were for extending all the bush rates a couple years ago, and arguably the gdp was stronger than it was and is now, and you argue that now and then was not the time to do it? then he did catch the president in a, what the, you know what. >> i think the president, the situation he found himself in was he did not want to see taxes go up on people making less than $250,000 a year. he wanted to see and consistency said he would like to continue that level of taxation on people earning less than $250,000. he was running in, however, to a very hard core obstruction deal saying we're not going forward with that if you don't include the millionaires and billionaire
